PGA Tour pro Chris Kirk has revealed he will be taking an "indefinite leave" from competition in order to deal with alcohol abuse and depression.
The American, who has a wife and three kids, took to Twitter to share a statement about beginning "a new and better chapter in my life."
Tomorrow I will celebrate my 34th birthday but I have already begun a new and better chapter in my life. Thank you to my friends and family for being there for me. pic.twitter.com/XJjFYyojlh— Chris Kirk (@Chris_Kirk_) 7 May 2019
